Unless you've been living under a rock these past couple of days, you've probably heard about this Netflix show.

I must admit, when I first heard about it, I thought to myself; "damn that sounds boring as hell". But nope. I was wrong. It's very rare that I find a show that catches my attention so quickly that I have to watch the entire thing in one sitting. But that's what happened here.

Let me tell you what it's about, before rating it.

It's about these two teens, Alyssa and James, who ends up going on a roadtrip because they think their lives are boring. In the beginning it's very awkward between the two, since Alyssa is so straight-forward and James is very reserved. Oh by the way, James wants to kill a person, and he's chosen Alyssa to be the victim. But a change of events leads to them killing a man and then fleeing. That's all I'm gonna say.

In the beginning it's very awkward and cringy to look at, but it still catches your attention. There's so many twists and turns and you never really know what to expect. It's very well produced and filmed. And the acting is really good as well. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars to be quite honest. Because it's just so intricate and weird and not like something I've ever seen before.

Also the episodes are only around 20 minutes long, so it's really easy to watch all of it in one sitting. You should definitely give it a shot!

I have trust issues. Big time. I have always been afraid of opening up to someone, only for them to switch on me, and tell everyone about my deepest thoughts. I don't trust in other people. I am convinced that they will leave me - no one will ever stay. And so, I started sharing more of myself with everyone I met. Because if I tell everyone about my deepest thoughts, then no one can turn on me and rat me out to anyone - since I've already done it myself. Apparently this is considered "oversharing" and "attention-seeking". But if I don't share these things myself, and I don't trust enough in other people to only share these things with a few select people, then what am I supposed to do? Just not say anything? Just keep everything bottled up inside? I feel like I'm stuck in a rut, and no matter what I do, I'm gonna be the one that ends up hurt.

Have you struggled with this? How did you get over it? What did you do?
